Join Dan Violet Sagmiller for an in-depth discussion in this video Action behavior, part of Build a Real-Time Strategy Game with Unity 5.
- [Voiceover] We could create a single script…that adds the buttons for a unit,…but I want an architecture that will allow…a designer to set up the units from Unity.…We'll create a special component to do that.…It'll take two scripts.…We'll start in the Scripts folder,…and then select Interactions,…and now we'll create a script called ActionSelect.…Next, we'll go to the Scripts folder and create a folder…underneath it called Actions.…In the Actions folder, we'll create a script…called ActionBehavior.…
Now let's edit it.…Now, ActionBehavior is going to be using Action,…so we'll have to use System,…using System.…Additionally, I want this to be an abstract class…so it doesn't get used by its own,…it gets picked up by other things.…So, I'll start with public abstract.…Next, I need a method that I can have…to be able to extract the ClickAction…from this particular ActionBehavior.…So, I'm going to say public abstract Action…GetClickAction.…
Then I need a field to hold onto…the Sprite for the ButtonPicture.…And I don't need Update or Start,…
